I just LOVE the assortment of fabrics I chose! Let me tell you, it was really hard to narrow it down to just 8 or so fabrics from the large selection at the fabric store. My favorite one is the deep red with gold holly leaves.
I added a bit of fun flair with the pom-pom fringe. The tree skirt wasn't too hard to put together, but it just took a lot of time pinning and sewing carefully around those pom-poms.
Hand-tying all the squares took a whole evening itself! I used red sparkly embroidery floss, and cut the strands to about an inch long after I was done tying.
I absolutely love the finished product! Can't wait to use it for the next several years and have it pictured in our own Christmas memories in the future.
